We report a case of a 32 year-old male with cataract in the right eye who has a history of explosive industrial accidents 25 years ago. Foreign body reflection was seen into the old conjunctival scar with slit-lamb examination. Metallic foreign body was expolored and surgically removed from the sclera. One month later, the patient underwent an uneventful cataract surgery in the right eye. This case showed a scleral foreign body may result in cataract formation most probably due to low-grade anterior uveitis even in intact globes.
